Ok, so I have a new edit called Last of the Jedi, which is basically the same as my “Clean Cut” but with a few changes tailored to the purist crowd, who prefer absolute saga continuity. The following changes*:
*NEW - New Crawl for "Last of the Jedi" title and slightly altered text *NEW - Starfield after credits goes into hyperspace and we see the Falcon en route to Ahch-to *NEW - Luke's mountaintop scene reinstated *NEW - Luke hands the saber back to Rey and walks away *NEW - Transition to rebel cruisers escaping and new sfx -Cut Rebel girl’s “oh no” in opening scene -Cut Poe ‘prank call’ with Hux at the beginning -Cut Snoke slamming and dragging Hux -Trimmed ridiculous exaggerated amount of time it takes rebel bomber girl to catch the detonator -Cut Finn/Rose side arc altogether -Added Finn and Poe deleted scene *NEW - Finn asks where Rey is and then we cut to Rey finding Luke in his hut -Cut Poe/Holdo “fuel” arc -Inserted Ryan Glossemeyer’s “Luke saves Leia” scene. I think this was really well done and a powerful scene. Great way to give us more Luke and show how the near0death of his sister showed him how important the Force is - adds depth to his inner conflict -Cut DJ and Phasma side stories completely - these characters aren’t in this version of the movie -Added “Luke mourning Han” deleted scene -Cut Snoke’s “tied on a string indeed” line… since the choke slam is no longer in this edit -Added Holdo’s introduction speech but cut tension with Poe - this scene also adds a nice exposition about leia recovering from her space-walk -Cut Ach-Too caretakers altogether -Altered Luke and Rey’s dialogue inside the Force tree - no more awkward 'no one is from nowhere" exchange -Cut Luke/Rey joke bout “reaching out” and slapping on the hand -Added Luke’s 3rd lesson - Caretakes Village scene - this scene works great to fill is a few blanks for the viewers - mainly the inclusion of Luke’s 3rd lesson, but also adds tension between Rey and Luke right before she storms off and received Kylo’s “force skype” telling her his version of the story… and she kind of believes him because she’s already annoyed with Luke -Cut Holdo/Leia awkward “may the force be with you” and just let Holdo say it. -Cut Snoke’s “Tied on a string indeed” comment with Hux (since there is no reference to it prior to this scene) -Cut Rey force-grabbing Kylo’s saber in the Snoke confrontation, only to have it taken away from her a second later. -Snoke’s guards now have red lightsabers (courtesy of Immersion VFX) -Cut Snoke laying on the floor -Cut Kylo’s “Do you want to know the truth about your parents?” lines (i didn’t like the original dialogue at all) -Cut Finn trying to crash into the battering ram and Rose saving him -Cut Finn’s “they hate that ship” in the Crait battle -Zoom/scale the explosion to crop Rose and Finn out when the battering ram blasts the giant door open -Luke uses his ROTJ hilt and GREEN lightsaber in duel eith kylo. (courtesy of Immersion VFX) -Removed broom boy and slave children ending -Removed Finn/Rose at the end -Removed Poe/Rey meeting *NEW - Luke fades away reinstated - before fading away, we hear him tell Rey "This is your fight now" -Altered Rey’s conversation with Leia to omit “Luke is gone” -New iris transition to end movie with falcon scene -Added credits for myself and vfx artist
